SLIDELL – Deputies say a Slidell teen was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Lacombe Monday morning.
According to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, the crash happened around 11:40 a.m. on Bayou Paquet Road near Transmitter Road. A 2013 BMW 550I, driven by 17-year-old Spencer Coe, was found overturned in the tree line.
Coe was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other occupants in the vehicle.
